EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which come into force on 5th March 2007, amend the Education (Induction Arrangements for School Teachers) (Consolidation) (England) Regulations 2001(SI 2001/2897) (“the principal Regulations”). They only affect teachers who—

(a)    qualified between 1st May 2000 and 30th April 2001,

(b)    completed their induction period either before the coming into force of these Regulations or complete their induction period after coming into force but before 27th April 2007, and

(c)    have not, either on the coming into force of these Regulations or when they complete their induction period if later, passed the numeracy skills test.

These Regulations extend the induction period of these teachers to 27th April 2007 or the date, if earlier, on which they pass the numeracy skills test (regulation 4). They also extend the time for passing the test to 27th April 2007 (regulation 5). They ensure that a teacher whose induction period is extended in accordance with regulation 16A of the principal Regulations is lawfully employed during that extension (regulation 6).

A further effect is that the employer of a person who has not passed that test by that date or at the end of the induction period if later, must, pursuant to regulation 18 of the principal Regulations, secure the termination of that person's employment as a teacher.
